About the Authors

Sanjeev D. Nandedkar

Sanjeev received his Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Virginia. During his studies he spent one year as a research engineer with Dr. Erik V Stalberg at the Uppsala University, Sweden. He worked as MDA fellow and later as a Research Medical Assistant Professor at EMG laboratory of the Duke University. In collaboration with Dr. Sanders and Dr.Stalberg, he developed computer simulation techniques to advance the interpretation of the EMG signals. He has co-developed many analysis techniques such as Multi- Motor Unit Analysis (MMA), Expert's Quantitative Interference Pattern (EQUIP), and Turns and Amplitude (TA) that are used in EMG assessment.

At present he is a Clinical Applications Manager at Oxford Instruments where he actively participates in design and development of the Synergy EMG system. He also enjoys teaching and has met hundreds of electromyographers over the last decade. He has given lectures and conducted workshops in many countries (USA, Canada, Mexico, Holland, France, Germany, China, Japan, India, Korea, etc). He also participates actively in the special interest groups of the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. He has published over 40 articles in medical and engineering journals. He has also contributed chapters to various textbooks on electromyography.

Paul E. Barkhaus

Paul received his M.D. degree from the Wayne State University. He worked as a Fellow at the University of Minnesota and University of Arizona. He went to the University Hospital in Uppsala to learn quantitative analysis techniques under the supervision of Dr. Erik V Stalberg. He returned to the Duke University as a Senior Fellow where he applied quantitative analysis techniques to study patients with myopathy in collaboration with Dr. Donald B Sanders and Dr. Sanjeev D Nandedkar. At present he is an Associate Professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He also directs the Neuromuscular Clinic at the Milwaukee VA Medical Center. He is a Board Certified member of the American Association of the Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AAEM).

Dr.Barkhaus enjoys taking care of patients, teaching electrodiagnosis, and working with the residents and Fellows in his laboratory. He has published several articles on electromyographic investigations in patients with neuromuscular diseases and also on the recording characteristics of the electrodes. He has given many lectures and taught "hands-on" workshop at the annual meeting of AAEM. He also serves on many committees of the professional organizations and has participated as an examiner on certification examinations.
